The Effects Of Teeth Grinding

Have you ever been told that you grind your teeth in your sleep? This is actually quite common! Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is often brought on unconsciously when you’ve been experiencing feelings of stress or anxiety.

The team at Albany Dental provides quality teeth grinding treatment for residents in Gosford and the surrounding Central Coast.

Unfortunately, the impact of excessive grinding can be highly detrimental to your teeth and jaw. During grinding, your teeth, as well as the bones and muscles in your face and jaw, are put under tremendous pressure and stress.

Many patients also report jaw aches, headaches, and even temporomandibular disorders (TMD). If you have been a long time teeth grinder, we highly recommend you visit our Gosford team for an assessment. A lack of treatment could cause your teeth to become chipped, loosened, or fractured.

To ensure your natural teeth is protected and to help you avoid complex dental treatments, book an appointment at Albany Dental today.

What’s Splint Treatment?

Receive your splint treatment at Albany Dental in as little as two visits! Splints (or mouthguards) prevent your teeth from grinding together by acting as a shield between them.

Designed to fit snugly over your teeth, it’s removable so that you can still eat, drink and socialise comfortably.

By absorbing the pressure created by grinding, the splint allows your jaw, teeth, and muscles to relax. During your appointments, a paste will be used to take a mould of your teeth.

One of our experienced dental technicians will then create your splint based on the mould and ensure it fits comfortably in your mouth.

What’s next? Simply wear your splint each night to save yourself the trouble of uncomfortable grinding and toothaches.

Teeth grinding can invite debilitating symptoms such as headaches, tenderness, muscle tightness, and TMD. Splints are an incredibly effective solution to avoid suffering and improve your quality of life.

In cases of severe and prolonged bruxism, it is often necessary to undergo expensive dental and surgical treatments.

By wearing a mouthguard or splint at night, you can prevent your teeth from wearing down, thereby saving yourself the cost of crowns, bridges, or dental implants in the event of tooth loss.

Neuromuscular Surgery

Neuromuscular surgery may be necessary for severe cases of bruxism, which allows your jaw muscles to relax and function normally.

After an initial assessment, if our dentist concludes that the effects of your teeth grinding have become too severe to treat with splints, we will refer you to a qualified neuromuscular surgeon.
